D1: The RFA states the performance period will be for eighteen (18) months. May an applicant submit a twelve (12) month period proposal? If so submitted, will it be viewed negatively?

Section II.A of the RFA states that cooperative agreements funded under this announcement will have a project period up to eighteen months. Thus, an applicant can submit an application with a project period and milestone schedule that is eighteen months or shorter.  The milestone schedule should provide a breakout of the project activities into phases with associated tasks and a timeframe for completion of tasks and an approach for ensuring that awarded funds will be expended in a timely and efficient manner.  In accordance with Section V, criteria under Item number 4, “Milestone Schedule/Detailed Budget,” applicants will be evaluated on a number of factors such as adequacy and completeness of the milestone schedule, including timeframes and major milestones to complete significant project tasks, and an approach to ensure that awarded funds will be expended in a timely and efficient manner.
